The Welsh Assembly’s new Jobs Growth Wales scheme will create 12,000 jobs for 16- to 24-year-olds. The jobs will last forsix months, and pay at least the Minimum Wage for at least 25 hours per week.
Campaigning in Wales in the local government elections Vince Cable denies that the government will impose lower pay on Welsh public sector workers. Apparently, he says: “It would be wrong to do so and it’s practically impossible”. Well fancy that.
